Graduate Studies Matching Program (GSMP) Awards
The Graduate Studies Matching Program (GSMP) is a scholarship and awards fundraising program, initiated by the York University Foundationís YorkU50 fundraising campaign to raise money for graduate student funding. One goal of the GSMP is to attract top applicants to our graduate programs.
